officer bob baer. you have new reporting on the status of the fbi investigation. what can you tell us? >> anderson, it's pretty extraordinary and astonishing to me who's worked with the fbi over a decade. you understand when this happens and the fbi opens an investigation one of the first things they do is go to the state department and say please request permission for us to enter this country, libya, get to the crime scene, benghazi. please request that we have the security and ability to do that and that we will have access to the crime scene and have access to any individuals that libya takes into custody. while the fbi made that request to the state department. what we found out today from senior law enforcement officials while the fbi made it to tripoli they have never made it to benghazi. >> they haven't been on the ground in benghazi? >> they have not. it was taking so long to get permission to go to tripoli, the fbi deployed their personnel to a location in the region so they would be closer. they have conducted interviews of the state department and u.s. government personnel
f.b.i. agent has been to the consulate on benghazi, because of security concerns. those are just some of the new and shocking information we have for you tonight on the rapidly evolving story. here is chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge. >> reporter: two sources tell fox news that within 24 hours of the assault on the u.s. compound in benghazi, the evidence pointed to a terrorist attack carried out by al-qaeda. the u.s. intelligence community had strong leads to indicate the affiliate in north africa, working with a second group that ceased to establish islamic state. "no one believes that mortars and the rpgs were work of mob. no one. " >> it was a terrorist attack. >> reporter: asked when he reached the conclusion the defense secretary was vague. >> day after, or -- >> it took a while to really get the feedback from what exactly happened at that location. >> reporter: in addition to c.i.a. assessment before the acta, security in libya was deteriorating. in august, a defense department report on the rise of al-qaeda in libya there was another warning about islami
in the fbi agents can't even make into banghazi. >> i watched the presentation. i thought it was amazing that someone in her position would go on with that degree of certainty, that fast, and that authoritatively and be that wrong. >> did you know the chairman of the homeland security committee has asked for susan rice to resign? does the president have 100% confidence in susan rice? >> absolutely. she's done a terrific job for this country, for this administration. >> we do know the administration has been extremely inconsistent. we know this was a preplanned terrorist attack. the point i'm trying to make is, we need to get ulthe facts to prevent that from happening buts indicative of a broader picture, which is the absolute unraveling of the obama administration's foreign policy. >> this was a terrorist attack on 9/11 that took the life of a united states ambassador, an american ambassador. this is serious stuff. americans deserve the truth on what happened. >> greta: so u.n. ambassador rice resign? earlier former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld went on the secretary. mr. secretar
in and offered a more complete picture of the circumstances. >> shep: two weeks later, f.b.i. hasn't been able to get to the scene of the crime. they haven't been able to get to the city? >> reporter: they say the f.b.i. investigation needs to play out. there are no f.b.i. agents on the ground in benghazi because the security situation is too ten us on. the chairman of homeland security it smacks of a pre-9/11 mind set. >> one thing we learned back on september 11th, no longer assume these are criminal matters, they are terrorists, terrorist attacks. >> reporter: and late today the democrats on the senate foreign relations committee sent this to the deputy secretary of state. for more information on the attacks and security arrangements neither the u.s. or libyan government had intelligence prior to the attacks. >> shep: the leader of israel delivered a warning to the world only months remain to stop iran from developing a nuclear bomb. benjamin netanyahu spoke this afternoon. his comments come one day after iran's president addressed the same leaders at the u.n. and today the israeli prime mi
have any information as to whether or not the fbi is on the ground in benghazi, libya, going through the consulate or not? >> it is not clear they're on the ground today, i don't know the answer to that. i can tell you a week after the incident they were not on the ground in benghazi. they were in neighboring tripoli. they were not where the crime scene was. that is deeply troubling fact. how can they not investigate the incident if they're not occurring the crime scene. that usually has to occur right after the event. i would hope they're there now. bill: what does that suggest if they are not? >> i don't know how you can do a full investigation if you can't be there to secure evidence at the scene and to be right where the event occurred to ask questions. my background as a prosecutor and i can tell you the first thing that you need to do is right at the beginning of the event you have to get the accounts, you've got to make sure the evidence is secure. the fact they haven't been there is deeply troubling. bill: could it be it is still not safe? >> well it could be that that sugges
been down this road before. >> reporter: i have. we were back here in 2006 when fbi received what it believed to be a credible tip, and they dug at the horse farm quite a bit. they spent a lot of money doing so but didn't find anything. now they're working on another tip. as you can see what's going on just over our shoulder here, the digging has begun inside that shed. what the police department is doing with some expert help is digging a small hole in concrete inside there so they can fit in a drill to get a soil sample. then they hope to deliver that on monday to michigan state university to try to determine whether there are in fact human remains below there. the question of course is one of many questions. why do police think that the tipster in this case is credible? one reason why is that they said that he claimed that he saw what could have been a body being buried right here in this area around the same time that jimmy hoffa disappeared back in 1975. the police chief says the tipster never claimed that he saw jimmy hoffa being buried here, but the timing is in the vicinit
's important to know that there's an fbi investigation that has begun and will take some time to be completed. at will tell us with certainty what transpired but our current best assessment based on the information that we have at present is that in fact, what this began as was a spontaneous, not a premeditated response to what had transpired in cairo. in cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated. >> the u.n. ambassador susan rice. two sundays ago, took another three days before the administration began acknowledging what many experts say should have been obvious. >> let me begin by asking you whether you would say that ambassador stevens and the three other americans died as a result of a terrorist attack. >> certainly on that particular question, i would say yes. they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy. >> two days later, secretary of state clinton made it even plainer. >> what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack and we will not rest until we have
night. take a look at the front page of "new york times" talked about f.b.i. agents into benghazi. you have a horrendous scandal and cover-up unfolding right now. >> it's inexplicable to me as i said yesterday in watergate it was a scandal but nobody died. we have a dead ambassador and three other brave americans who lost their lives. i think the american people deserve an answer. yet we're talking about why mitt romney's campaign is struggling whether it is or isn't. it seems like, is there in your mind an unprecedented level of attempt to influence the selection for barack obama? >> i have never seen the media that is more biased in any political campaign in my life. it's out of closet. mike, i worked over msnbc i discovered very late, i guess, there weren't that many conservatives over there. [ laughter ] >> not too many. >> i felt fairly lonely over there for a while. but people are coming right out the blue all out supporting barack obama. these almost the first responders to obama campaign. but this libya situation is much more important. look what has happened. four days after t
do not appear to be learning from the past." now, you were at the fbi in 1998. what do you make of that? are we not learning the lesson from the past? >> frankly i think that's ridiculous. we've learned a lot from those lessons. but there's a much different situation here in libya than there was in kenya and tanzania in 1998. >> how so? >> you don't have a developed government for one thing. >> libyan government. >> the libyan government that doesn't have the robust law enforcement, intelligence, military forces to be able to -- just come into power. trying to deal with a few number of insurgents that are going to cause trouble no matter what. >> the people will ask, what can they do. because frankly it was the united states embassy we're talking about which supposedly is united states tear toirks at least the inside of it. >> right. but internationally, host country always provides the outer perimeter security. so if they failed to do that, then if there's enough people causing an attack it's going to be like the alamo. are going to be able to overwhelm an embassy or consulate.
of treating it like it's a "law & order" issue, rather than a war on terrorism. they have sent the f.b.i. over who had to cool their heels for days before they could even get in there, and i don't know if they are in benghazi yet. but, you know, i heard yesterday about this journal that was found by -- of the ambassador, three days after the attack by a journalist walking through the compound. this is just lew ludicrous. on the face of it the way they are handling this is so incompetent, and treating it again like it's a "law & order" issue, they've sent the f.b.i. to investigate, like when they find out what is wrong are they going to try to arrest somebody in libya? bill: we'll be in touch with your office and find out what you find out. thank you for your time. i want to bring in senior brooks, a senior fellow for national security affairs. peter what is going on here. >> i have the same concerns that the chairman has, he just expressed, and he's probably better informed than i am. we see all of these loose treads on this narrative coming out of the white house. my sense at this point becau
smuggle ing area in that city. the f.b.i. is now investigating. >> each time that a law enforcement person is killed or shot or injured in the line of duty, we have to take a moment and think of the families and the heroes involved. we very much feel in our hearts and prayers going to the families. >>trace: officials named that border patrol station after brian terry. now, sir, what are authorities doing to find the suspects? >>guest: everything. this is a desert area that is flat, and runs up to the natural forest. it is a great area for smuggling but a difficult place to find someone. so we have virtually an army with helicopters in the air, a drone, as well, all looking for the suspects. early this morning at 2:00 a.m., local time, a sensor laid down by the border patrol on a known smuggling route, three agents went out. one was killed. another has two gunshots. he will be okay. a third was not hit. right new we told no one is in custody and no firearms have been recovered. here is what we don't know: how many shots were fired? what were we awayed with? was anyone wounded? there are thr
-- security is so bad that the fbi won't even even go in now to investigate the case. and i want to stay with this. what about this coverup? >> it is a coverup. >> susan rice goes out and basically lies to the american people on a number of news shows, we now know that the administration knew right away that this was a pre-planned al qaeda terrorist operation and they lied and now they're covering up the lie. >> within 24 hours they knew it was an al qaeda operation. >> so that's why they don't want obama loose on this foreign policy. >> obama never takes -- he never says i'm to blame. it's always george bush is to blame, somebody else is to blame. he's never to blame. he is to blame. it's on his watch. >> go ahead, mark. >> the one thing that i have to say in defense of the administration here, and i know the security situation in the north africa quite well because of my own experience. it was confusing in the beginning. but it's no excuse if going out there and trotting out some alibi that it was not a terrorist attack. so i agree with that. but the one thing i want to say is the pres
about the search for retired fbi agent robert levinson. he vanished in iran more than five years ago. when we interviewed iran's president he seemed to admit that they're holding levinson and there are on going negotiations for a prisoner swap. on tuesday levinson's wife christine spoke with senior correspondent john miller. >> were you surprised when you heard his comments? in the past he's asked and said much less. >> i was quite surprised but i was also happy to hear it. that means we can actually hopefully resolve bob's case. >> you consider these comments a step forward? >> yes, i do. i do. i hope the iranian government and president ahmadinejad will continue to work to return bob to his family. >> that's a really interesting story. when we talked to him about that, there's indication that he is there, this acknowledgment there's been some discussion of a swap and we'll see if there's some movement on this case. a family is missing their father and grandfather for more than five years. >> one aspect of the story we didn't report which is after yards iranians said no, no, he's in
with the fbi trying to solve this case. >>> well, right now, a computer hacker's group is attacking the u.s. bank website. we just tried to access the site. it's not loading. yesterday, that same group targeted wells fargo's website. now, the bank says the group slowed down their service but customer information, they say, was not compromised. last week that same group disrupted service on the bank of america and chase websites. these hackers say these attacks will continue until a video that they say insults the prophet muhammad is removed from the internet. >>> 7:37. in election news, mitt romney is making his pitch to voters in the battle ground state of ohio today as he tries to boost his poll numbers. >> he said he can't change washington from the inside, only from the outside. well, we're gonna give him that chance to be on. outside on november 6th. >>> romney was referring to comments made by president obama at a univision forum last week. he also said his policies would do more to help middle-class families than the president's. he has two more stops in ohio today. >>> and preside
